This yummy chocolate yogurt bark is the perfect treat to keep in your freezer to grab whenever a craving for something sweet hits. Plus, the pomegranate seeds are a source of polyphenols, which studies suggest may help combat inflammation, some risk factors for heart disease, and depression and anxiety.

This recipe is: heart healthy, anti-inflammatory, vegetarian, gluten free

Start to finish: 10 minutes, plus 4 hours chill time

Serves 3


  • 1/4 cup boiling water
  • 2 hibiscus tea bags
  • 1 1/2 cups plain, low-fat Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 2/3 tablespoons canned beets
  • 1 teaspoon stevia powder
  • 1/3 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 3 tablespoons chopped walnuts

Boil water. Once it’s reached a boil, pour 1⁄4 cup of the boiling water over 2 tea bags and steep for 5 minutes. Then, let cool.

Line a 9-by-13-inch baking sheet with parchment paper, wax paper, or a silicone mat.

Using a blender or food processor, combine the tea with the rest of the ingredients except the pomegranate seeds and walnuts.

Spread the yogurt mixture evenly onto the lined baking sheet, about 1/4 inch thick. Top with pomegranate seeds and walnuts, gently pressing them down into the mixture.

Freeze for 4–5 hours (or overnight) until firm. Break into pieces to eat.


  • Keep frozen in an airtight container or freezer bag for up to 2 months. Line with parchment paper between the pieces if needed.
  • A 9-by-13-inch sheet pan will make approximately nine 3-inch-by-4-inch pieces. A serving is 3 pieces.
  • If you plan on making a batch of the Hibiscus Pomegranate Yogurt Bark at the same time, pour 1/2 cup of boiling water over 4 hibiscus tea bags and reserve 1/4 cup of the tea for that recipe.
  • The more liquid added, the icier (and less creamy) the dessert will become when it freezes. Blending in any fresh or frozen fruit will add to the liquid content.
  • Keep frozen and serve immediately out of the freezer. Chilling a plate ahead of time will help keep the dessert cold.
